Other Fall Anime (after a few weeks)

October 28, 2007 at 4:22 pm (Anime)

Night Wizard – Watchable.

Gundam 00 – My computer is apparently not awesome enough to play this.

Rental Magica – meh

Ninomiya – pr0n

Suteki Tantei Labyrinth – boring. nice background art though

Dragonaut – maybe

ef – NO U.

Ghost Hound – that…sure is from the dudes who made Lain.

Bamboo Blade – does not make me want to stab out my eyes with steak knives. Has sentai jokes and justice.

So I also have looked at Clannad, KimiKiss, Genshiken 2 (which I can’t get excited about =\), and Minami-ke.

I still have that Nougami Neuro thing in my queue. Oh and Shion no Ou.

Did I miss anything?

So I was like, I guess I’ll watch KimiKiss

but I dunno. Episode 2 was discouraging. It was full of the kind of dialogue that makes these renai adaptations stupid. Mao is like “HEY MR. STOIC LET’S MAKE A DEAL WHERE YOU TALK TO ME SO I CAN ADD YOU TO MY SHIPPING LIST.” Now, I may not have grown up in a Japanese high school, but I cannot imagine anyone actually having a conversation like that. Most of the time it doesn’t matter, but since this is supposed to be a drama that emotionally attaches you to the characters (I guess?) I’d tend to hope for something less…inane. But then I remember this isn’t a normal drama, it’s a renai adaptation, and it has its own genre conventions, which I am supposed to be chuckling at (OMG LOL BENTO) because that is how we roll around here.

Is it already out of style to make “TURN YOU INTO JUNK” jokes about any character voiced by Rie Tanaka? It’s great in renai anime, since then you can be like “Well, she’ll do something with his junk anyway.” Or alternatively you can get extra-nerdy and be like “by which I mean SEXUALLY OBJECTIFY YOU”

Oh, also, thanks to Shinichiro Watanabe, hearing saxaphone music in my anime made me expect rogue space samurai breakdancers to suddenly crash into the school and give chase to the main characters, which, all things said, probably would have been more entertaining.

I was trying to watch Clannad and KimiKiss, but I kept getting them confused, on account of them being full of stock renai characters, so I had to pick one to watch first.

I used to get really confused when people talked about Clannad, because I assumed they were talking about the band.

I guess I haven’t posted in a while (busy), so here’s my review of the Fall Season:

Minami-ke is good.
